The Mazda RX-9 is a sports car produced by the Japanese automaker Mazda that is rumored to be slated for release in 2020. Holiday Auto, a Japanese magazine, reported that would be previewed at the 2017 Tokyo Auto Show, and the final production model would be featured at the same event in 2019.[1] It was not, however, shown at the 2017 event.[2]

As of 2016, rumors called for the car to be released in January 2020, to coincide with Mazda's 100th anniversary, and would be initially priced at eight million yen (US$75511 in 2015).[1][3] It was believed it will showcase the return of the Wankel rotary engine,[4] but CEO Masamichi Kogai said Mazda will not launch another rotary engine.[5]
